Mango & Tomato & Avocado Salsa

You know how the name of my blog is Mango & Tomato? Well, a few nights ago I decided to come up with a recipe that actually involves both a mango and a tomato! And I did. And I really liked it! So here it is: Mango & Tomato & Avocado Salsa.

Ingredients
1/2 mango, cubed
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 avocado, cubed
1 tablespoon white onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/2 lime, juiced
salt & pepper to taste

Directions
1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
2. Mix.
3. Eat!!

Optional: you can also add jalapenos to your salsa. And if your mango wasn't perfectly ripe (as was the case for me), you can even add a bit of sugar!

Please share your ideas of combining mangoes and tomatoes...maybe I'll try them out and post about it!

I adore mango! I have never cooked with it. I eat it too fast for it to make it to the pan!

We've done papayas but not mango. It's time to give it a try.

That sounds fabulous. I love mangoes so much. I eat them with a bit of salt and paprika but I bet some tomatoes would really add to the flavor! Great idea.

Just hand me a couple of tortilla chips, and I'd park myself at that salsa bowl all night. ;)

That sounds good! I am going to make it tonight for dinner but I have to substitute some fresh pineapple for the mango. Never thought of combining the avacado into the salsa!!
